    On November 6th, 2009, a fundraiser will be held for the family of Arlington Police Detective Stephen Krepelka.

    Recently, the Krepelka family has come across some very trying times. Stephen’s wife recently was rushed to Brigham & Women’s Hospital where she underwent an emergency c-section due to complications with the pregnancy. The new Krepelka, Isabel, was resuscitated and transferred to Children’s Hospital where she presently remains on a ventilator.

    If this was not trying enough, after visiting his wife’s hospital room with his mother, Stephen collapsed in the lobby in cardiac arrest.

    Stephen was resuscitated in the Brigham & Women's ER. He the immediately underwent 13 hours of emergency cardiac surgery to repair the aneurysm that was the cause of his sudden cardiac arrest. At this time, he remains in intensive care at Brigham & Women’s Hospital.

    In an attempt to raise funds for the family, a benefit will be held on Friday, November 6th @ Jillian’s in Boston from 8-11pm. There will be a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction and door prizes.

    All money raised will go directly to helping this family in need.
